I am putting the Teahorse Hostel in Harpers Ferry on the market. Link to Zillow is:


I have really enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life for the past 4 years but I am ready now to move into another phase of my life. The Teahorse Hostel is only 1/2 mile from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and as such, my guests have been 70% hikers, 20% bicyclists from the C&O Towpath along the Potomac River and 10% tourists visiting Harpers Ferry. The Teahorse Hostel has been in the AT Guide and in the AT Companion for 3 years and is well known along the AT. I would really like to see the continuation of a hostel on this property.

A big plus to living in Harpers Ferry and Bolivar (two tiny towns right next to each other) is the friendly and welcoming community. There is a Merchants' Association for business owners. If you want to slip into Washington DC for the day, it's easy to catch an early morning commuter train to Union Station and then catch another train back in the evening. It's small town living with big city access.

Teahorse Hostel will continue to be open until November. If you are interested in finding out more about the hostel, please PM me or contact me through Zillow.

Thank you for your support to hikers over the years. I enjoyed my times staying over-night at your hostel and appreciate the shuttles (one down to front royal and then again this past April from Pen-Mar). Best of luck to you in whatever your next endeavor may be.

Thanks very much! This is a nice business for 2 people to run for 8 months out of the year and have 4 months off. I have enjoyed the interaction with all of the other hostel owners along the AT!
